Bob Carlisle - Butterfly kisses
Tekst: Bob Carlisle / Muziek: Randy Thomas
(1997)






There’s two things I know for sure
She was sent here from heaven and she’s daddy’s little girl
As I drop to my knees by her bed at night
She talks to Jesus and I close my eyes
And I thank God for all of the joy in my life
Ooh, but most of all for



Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair
“Walk beside the pony daddy, it’s my first ride”
“I know the cake looks funny, daddy, but I sure tried”
Oh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve a hug every morning and butterfly kisses at night



Sweet sixteen today
She’s looking like her momma a little more every day
One part woman, the other part girl
To perfume and make-up, from ribbons and curls
Trying her wings out in a great big world
But I remember



Butterfly kisses after bedtime prayer
Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair
“You know how much I love you daddy, but if you don’t mind
I’m only going to kiss you on the cheek this time”
Ooh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses at night



All the precious time
Ooh, like the wind, the years go by
Precious butterfly
Spread your wings and fly



She’ll change her name today
She’ll make a promise and I’ll give her away
Standing in the bride room just staring at her
She asks me what I’m thinking and I said, “I’m not sure
I just feel like I’m losing my baby girl”
She leaned over, gave me



Butterfly kisses, with her mama there
Stickin’ little white flowers all up in her hair
“Walk me down the aisle, daddy, it’s just about time”
“Does my wedding gown look pretty, daddy?” “Daddy don’t cry”
Ooh, with all that I’ve done wrong, I must have done something right
To deserve her love every morning and butterfly kisses
I couldn’t ask God for more, man, this is what love is
I know, I’ve gotta let her go, but I’ll always remember
Every hug in the morning and butterfly kisses
